Chronicles of Crime is a cooperative game of crime investigation, mixing VR experience and board gaming. With the same physical components (board, locations, characters, and items), players will be able to play plenty of different scenarios and solve as many different crime stories.
They will start the app, choose the scenario they want to play, and follow the story. The goal is to catch the killer of the case they have been given in the shortest short time possible. Using the Scan&Play technology, each component (locations, characters, items, etc.) has a unique QR code, which, depending on the scenario selected, will activate and trigger different clues and stories. That means players will be able to get new stories way after the game is release simply by downloading the app's updates, without any shipping of new physical components involved.
The VR experience only requires a mobile phone. Players simply put the optional VR glasses (sold separately) onto their mobile device, holding their mobile device in front of their eyes, to immerse themselves in the game's universe, and search for clues in a virtual world. Each session lasts around 1h to 1h30 minutes and many scenarios are connected to each other in order to tell a much bigger story.
